Points of Weak$^\ast$Norm Continuity in the Unit Ball of the Space $\WC(K,X)^\ast$ For a compact Hausdorff space with a dense set of isolated points, we
give a complete description of points of weak$^\ast$norm continuity
in the dual unit ball of the space of Banach space valued functions
that are continuous when the range has the weak topology. As an
application we give a complete description of points of weaknorm
continuity of the unit ball of the space of vector measures when
the underlying Banach space has the RadonNikodym property.

InstabilitÃ© de vecteurs propres d'opÃ©rateurs linÃ©aires We consider some geometric properties of eigenvectors of linear
operators on infinite dimensional Hilbert space. It is proved that
the property of a family of vectors $(x_n)$ to be eigenvectors
$Tx_n= \lambda_n x_n$ ($\lambda_n \noteq \lambda_k$ for $n\noteq k$)
of a bounded operator $T$ (admissibility property) is very instable
with respect to additive and linear perturbations. For instance,
(1)~for the sequence $(x_n+\epsilon_n v_n)_{n\geq k(\epsilon)}$ to
be admissible for every admissible $(x_n)$ and for a suitable
choice of small numbers $\epsilon_n\noteq 0$ it is necessary and
sufficient that the perturbation sequence be eventually scalar:
there exist $\gamma_n\in \C$ such that $v_n= \gamma_n v_{k}$ for
$n\geq k$ (Theorem~2); (2)~for a bounded operator $A$ to transform
admissible families $(x_n)$ into admissible families $(Ax_n)$ it is
necessary and sufficient that $A$ be left invertible (Theorem~4).

New characterizations of the reflexivity in terms of the set of norm attaining functionals As a consequence of results due to Bourgain and Stegall, on a
separable Banach space whose unit ball is not dentable, the
set of norm attaining functionals has empty interior (in the
norm topology). First we show that any Banach space can be renormed to
fail this property. Then, our main positive result can be stated as
follows: if a separable Banach space $X$ is very smooth or its bidual
satisfies the $w^{\ast }$Mazur intersection property, then either $X$
is reflexive or the set of norm attaining functionals has empty
interior, hence the same result holds if $X$ has the Mazur
intersection property and so, if the norm of $X$ is Fr\'{e}chet
differentiable. However, we prove that smoothness is not a sufficient
condition for the same conclusion.

Smooth partitions of unity on Banach spaces It is shown that if a Banach space $X$ admits a $C^k$smooth bump
function, and $X^{*}$ is Asplund, then $X$ admits $C^k$smooth
partitions of unity.

On certain $K$groups associated with minimal flows It is known that the Toeplitz algebra associated with any flow
which is both minimal and uniquely ergodic always has a trivial
$K_1$group. We show in this note that if the unique ergodicity is
dropped, then such $K_1$group can be nontrivial. Therefore, in
the general setting of minimal flows, even the $K$theoretical
index is not sufficient for the classification of Toeplitz
operators which are invertible modulo the commutator ideal.

Mazur intersection properties for compact and weakly compact convex sets Various authors have studied when a Banach space can be renormed so
that every weakly compact convex, or less restrictively every
compact convex set is an intersection of balls. We first observe
that each Banach space can be renormed so that every weakly compact
convex set is an intersection of balls, and then we introduce and
study properties that are slightly stronger than the preceding two
properties respectively.

On the Clarke subdifferential of an integral functional on $L_p$, $1\leq p < \infty$ Given an integral functional defined on $L_p$, $1 \leq p <\infty$,
under a growth condition we give an upper bound of the Clarke
directional derivative and we obtain a nice inclusion between the
Clarke subdifferential of the integral functional and the set of
selections of the subdifferential of the integrand.

CaractÃ©risations spectrales du radical et du socle d'une paire de jordanbanach If $f$ and $g$ are two analytic functions from a domain $D$ of the
complex plane into respectively the Banach spaces $V^+$ and $V^$,
we prove that $\lambda\mapsto \Sp\bigl(f(\lambda),g(\lambda)\bigr)$ is an
analytic multivalued function. From this derives the subharmonicity of the
functions $\lambda\mapsto \rho_V\bigl(f(\lambda),g(\lambda)\bigr)$
and $\lambda\mapsto \log\rho_V\bigl(f(\lambda),g(\lambda)\bigr)$ where
$\rho$ denotes the spectral radius. We apply these results to obtain nice
caracterizations of the radical and the socle of a Banach Jordan pair,
and finally we get an algebraic structural theorem.

The range of group algebra homomorphisms A characterisation of the range of a homomorphism between two
commutative group algebras is presented which implies, among other
things, that this range is closed. The work relies mainly on the
characterisation of such homomorphisms achieved by P.~J.~Cohen.

Derivations from totally ordered semigroup algebras into their duals For a wellbehaved measure $\mu$, on a locally compact
totally ordered set $X$, with continuous part $\mu_c$, we make
$L^p(X,\mu_c)$
into a commutative Banach bimodule over the totally ordered
semigroup algebra
$L^p(X,\mu)$, in such a way that the natural surjection from the algebra
to the module is a bounded derivation. This gives rise to bounded
derivations from $L^p(X,\mu)$
into its dual module and in particular shows that if $\mu_c$ is not
identically zero then $L^p(X,\mu)$ is not weakly
amenable. We show that all bounded derivations from $L^1(X,\mu)$
into its dual module arise in this way and also describe all bounded
derivations from
$L^p(X,\mu)$ into its dual for $1

Convex functions on Banach spaces not containing $\ell_1$ There is a sizeable class of results precisely
relating boundedness, convergence and differentiability properties
of continuous convex functions on Banach spaces to whether or
not the space contains an isomorphic copy of $\ell_1$. In this
note, we provide constructions showing that the main such
results do not extend to natural broader classes of functions.
